Ice breaker – self portraits

10 Apr

This is a great icebreaker, starter or fun activity to break up a session that makes the students laugh and encourages discussion. The original idea is from: http://www.educatorstechnology.com and is very simple to set up. Just place paper and coloured pens on tables and ask students to draw a self portrait of themselves, they need to do it discreetly so everyone else doesn’t see (it’s good fun if the tutor does it too). Once everyone has finished then you can collect the pictures in and display them so students can guess who it is or shuffle them and distribute them to other tables for them to guess.

An alternative to drawing themselves is to give the students the cards from the WHO AM I GAME game I posted earlier and ask the students to draw the famous people then the class have to guess. There are countless possibilities with this game and lots of fun.
